Not sure what you mean by "copy the emails to another directory", but your emails are contained in a file called Inbox.dbx, that can only be read by Outlook Express or some 3rd party utilities.  You can find out the location of this file by going into Outlook Express and clicking Tools, options, the Maintenance tab, Store Folder.  This will give you the location of your inbox.dbx and all of the other .dbx files that make up your Outlook Express folder structure.
